How do you beat khorn?
« on: November 6, 2002, 10:20:48 PM »
Orks rock so bad in hand to hand but when you take a beserker and beaf him with all the new chaos upgrades mixed with the khorn mark (giving it the blood lust thingo) they rule even more. how do you guys kill a chaos army that ONLY does hand to hand? (900 points max, gotta be 1 HQ 2 troops)

The only thing I can recommend is to outnumber him. Take maxed out squads. I haven't played Chaos yet so I can't really help you here. You can't outshoot them with the basic weapons because they'll just make numerous saving throws. Take a bosspole so you can mob up. BUM RUSH!!! ;D

Remember that if you keep your ranks thick, it will take a lot for him to cut through you. Use Kans and other armor...most Khorne armies are weak against armor.

Yes, take a basilisk hide it, and blow the up, also some dreads and kans would do nicely, and some warbuggies with Kustom Mega Blastas, they put a nice den't in any SM army when they hit or don't blow up.

Mega armour against Khorne chain-axes are you stupid what a waste of points. Blow them apart from range before assaulting

The problem with mega armour and khorne chain axes, it makes that nice 2+ Sv a 4+ Sv and the fact that you strike last with Mega Ar. It is better to have Eavy Ar. and a choppa. That said trukks and mega ar. still won't work

I'd say as many Scar Boyz as possible.  These things are like 13 point berzerkers.  Sort of ...

Haven't seen the ork codex in a good long while, but can't you give flash gitz some AP 2 shootas? You could also go heavy on the scorchas.

i played and beat a chaos army that was all hand to hand, this is what i did, i loaded up 2 full squads of boyz and suped the nob up with mega armor and a megabooster, with his powerclaw he could take down on average 2 chaos guys at a time, the boyz just basically absorbed the brunt of it and took some heavy damage, i would work more on gettin gthe 2 troops to do the most damage, if you march them one at a time and rush the second group into combat after the first assaults you'll have 2 nobs in there doing some damage : )

other then that get lucky with rolls and don't feild a big HQ
Chain swords are awesome.  The only way would be cooler is if they had tits and were on fire.
